Highway 252 Study

Brooklyn Center, Brooklyn Park and Minneapolis

Public Meetings


Community workshops

Please join us at community workshops to learn about ideas to reduce congestion and improve safety and reliability on Hwy 252 between Hwy 610 in Brooklyn Park and I-694 in Brooklyn Center and on I-94 from I-694 in Brooklyn Center to downtown Minneapolis. Possible solutions will be evaluated in an environmental process and then will move forward into preliminary design.

You’ll have an opportunity to learn about previous studies and the current project, explore possible solutions and share your thoughts, ideas and concerns for this corridor.

The same information will be shared at each workshop. A presentation and discussion is scheduled for 5:45 p.m. Snacks and activities for children will be provided.

Past Meetings and Materials


  • Sept. 7: Brooklyn Center Open House
  • Sept. 6: Brooklyn Park Open House

    MnDOT, Hennepin County and the cities of Brooklyn Center and Brooklyn Park are studying various access layouts to improve safety and mobility along Hwy 252 between Hwy 610 and I-694. Additional goals of the project include providing community connectivity, pedestrian accommodations, access to transit services, and maintaining existing infrastructure investments.

    Two open houses were held in early September to provide information about the corridor issues and needs along with the purpose of the study. The meetings were well-attended by local residents, commuters and businesses. The project team also asked open house attendees to provide input on the study for the proposed project.
